Leopards coach Chaka Willemse has made two changes, including calling up goal-kicking utility Jean Tiedt, when he named his squad for the Currie Cup Round Two encounter with Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday.

Following their 18-26 loss to the Boland Cavaliers in their first game back in the big league, after years in the First Division, Willemse will be keen to get a win under the belt.

Tiedt, a regular at scrumhalf, often play at fullback as well – which is where he could be named when Willemse finalises his starting XV. He replaces Theo van Wyk in the squad.

Loose forward André Swanepoel comes into the matchday 22 in place of Edrich Linde in the only other change.

Leopards: 15 Russel Jeacocks, 14 Colin Lloyd, 13 Deon van Rensburg, 12 Japie Nel, 11 Shuaib Samaai, 10 Clayton Durand, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Christo van Niekerk, 7 RW Kember, 6 Wilhelm Koch (captain), 5 Rynard Landman, 4 Anthonie Gronum, 3 Barend van der Walt, 2 Gavin Williamson, 1 Nardus Lombaard.
Replacements: 16 Marthinus van der Westhuizen, 17 Dietlov Coetzee, 18 Andre Swanepoel, 19 Bennie Adams, 20 Jean Tiedt, 21 Jovan Bowles, 22 Jan van Zyl
